50 Cent

Earlier this week 50 Cent called off his Aug. 30 performance at the "40 Day" aka "Family Day" event in Queens, N.Y., after community members and law enforcement officials voiced fear over a possible shootout.

However, a new, more peace-inspired rumor has surfaced on the street: If 50 had, in fact, taken the stage at the G-Unit-helmed neighborhood party, he hoped to have Cam'ron join him. This seemed like an unlikely move from 50 Cent's camp considering the war of words that the G-Unit and Dipset members exchanged a few years ago. But before this story had time to gather too many legs, Killa Cam confirmed to MTV in a video interview that he had no plans of making the trip to Queens, where his beef with 50 first began.

"Nah, I'm not going to no show in Queens," Cam'ron said. "I don't know how true it is ... a few of my people -- associates -- said [some of 50's associates] was trying to reach out. But, I ain't going to no concert in Queens. Come up to Harlem Week. We could sit down and have the roundtable meeting if you really wanna be serious. Or meet anywhere ... we can meet in Benihana's if you wanna be serious. It don't matter. I'm not squashing a problem we had in Queens at your event." [The Boombox]

50 Cent may not be playing the Queens event, but he is playing the Beach on Governors Island on October 3rd. Tickets go on 'Internet Presale' today (Friday) at noon, and general sale on Saturday at the same time.

50 Cent has more talent than 99% of the other "musicians" featured on this website. Feel me?

On October 3rd, 2009, 50 Cent brings together the freshest hip-hop artists for the This is 50 Festival.

Rapper, actor and best-selling author, 50 Cent unites a diverse roster of artists for a day of performances at The Beach at Governors Island for his first annual festival, presented by LiveNDirect, AEG Live & Hot 97.

He has created what many have dubbed “The New Summer Jam.” The roster includes G-Unit, Kid Cudi, Wale, Mike Poser as well as special guests Jim Jones, D-Block, Maino and more.

LiveNDirect is headed by Peter Oasis, who says, “With the help of Chris Lighty & Jeremiah 'Ice' Younossi we were able to create a festival with one of my personal favorites. Having worked with 50 I truly understand his gift to make noise! Fif is the future and we hope that he'll do to music festivals what he did to sports drinks - change the game'

50 Cent has always remained ahead of the curve. As a business mogul, his entrepreneurial exploits have garnered attention beyond the music industry. For example he recently co-authored the highly anticipated book, The 50th Law, with Robert Greene, the author of The 48 Laws of Power.

Through his company, LiveNDirect , Peter Oasis has been a force in the New York City music and nightlife scenes for over 10 years. Synonymous with cutting-edge hip-hop concerts, he's worked with numerous artists including Eminem, Common, U-N-I, Mos Def,DJ A Trak, The Black Eyed Peas, Spank Rock and Outkast.
